10:11 pm
issue of which teachers are in the classroom and who has the control. >> the strike has also become an issue in the presidential ray. republican candidate mitt romney blasted the teachers -- race. republican ramblings the teachers. president obama not taking sides but wants a quick resolution. the known 2 al-qaeda leader is dead killed in -- no. 2 al-qaeda leader is dead killed in a u.s. drone strike today when a missile struck their car. al shari was jailed in pa guantanamo bay for six years. his death will deal a major blow to the terror group. as we remember the anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, millions are still sending financial help. >> but when you write that check, you may be surprised what it's really paying for. >> tonight on the news edge a gunman walks into a d.c.

10:15 pm
are speed camera fines in the district just too high? tonight neighbors showed up in numbers at a community meeting in ward 7 explaining why they think those camera fines are just making money for the city. fox 5's matt ackland was there. >> police say the sole purpose of these cameras is to save lives by preventing accidents. most residents understand that, but what they don't understand is why the city is charging violators so much, from $75 up to $250 a ticket. tonight at one of the few sitdown restaurants in ward 7 where unemployment is high and many residents struggle to make ends meet some say even one camera fine is a financial hardship. >> i'm not even making that much money that i can afford a
10:16 pm
$120 or 25 or 250. >> reporter: the issue of speed camera fines has been getting a lot of attention districtwide recently. a lot of people are upset. >> it doesn't make sense. it's about money. it's not about safety and i have a problem with that. >> reporter: council members tommy wells and mary cheh have started a discussion about possibly lowering fines. >> the tickets are just too high. >> reporter: council member wells agrees cameras are needed, but the expensive fines are not. >> it should not be such a hardship. the purpose of the fines is to improve the behavior. >> reporter: but there are some who disagree with him. >> we need one on alabama avenue. >> reporter: 70-year-old hillcrest resident gladys gray has no sympathy for speeders. >> give them a ticket. i beg for a camera. we're beg ing for more. >> reporter: many favor a flat fee getting rid of radar
10:17 pm
cameras altogether, but the question is how much? >> anything reasonable would between 50 and $75. >> d.c. council is the one that sets the fines, so the council will have to introduce legislation to change the fines. d.c. police do defend the cameras saying they are working when it comes to slowing people down, but the cameras are also on pace to generate $50 million a year for the district. >> a lot of money, thank you. former d.c. council chairman kwame brown will not be sentenced next week after awe. his lawyered asked for a delay, so it moves to sentencing on november 12th. brown pled guilty in june to bank fraud and a campaign finance violation charge and faces up to six months in prison on each charge. meantime it's likely a former campaign aide to mayor vincent gray won't serve jail time. prosecutors say howard brooks has been cooperative and provided substantial assistance into mayor gray's 2020 election

10:19 pm
statewide polls, in the battle ground state, those eight states which are -- states, those eight states which are very close and in that president obama probably should feel a lot better. seven of those eight polls in terms of real clear politicians that obama is ahead. the only state he's behind in is north carolina. >> which ones do you think that it's looking like mitt romney and the republicans are kind of giving up on? >> a big state which is pennsylvania. even though there's real voter id questions there, which is on the ballot that you have to produce a voter id. so i'm a little skeptical of that one where they think they now have a shot being wisconsin, which was before it was not considered a battleground state and obama won it by 14 points. now polls are showing romney might win there. >> i think we all saw it coming the pivot towards the mid.
10:20 pm
mitt romney has done it in sort of -- middle. mitt romney has done it in sort of dramatic fashion in taking on healthcare. he vows to appeal obamacare and now he's thinking he's going to keep a lot of obamacare in his healthcare plan. >> you put it much better than i could, brian, and synthesized it very well. what was very dramatic is over the weekend in another major network he said he's not going to throw away all of obamacare. in fact, he's for not outlawing giving insurance to preexisting conditions and that goes directly to the individual mandate. you really can't have that provision where somebody can get insurance even with a preexisting condition without everybody paying into the pool which is the individual mandate. already republicans, some realms, are calling him flip- flopping -- republicans, are calling him flop flopping and he also wants to maintain people up to 26 you can be on
10:21 pm
your parents' insurance. so these are dramatic shifts and some people are calling it a complete turnaround. >> fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin. the debates haven't even begun, but construction on the inauguration stage are already in the works. the west front of the u.s. capitol is closed off. it's quite a process. crews need to build the stands, bleachers, stage, inauguration scheduled for january 21st which we know will probably be the coldest day of the year of 2013. >> i deed. i remember it four years ago. we -- indeed. i remember it four years ago. we have seen a number of tragic shooting this summer. a video now airing on youtube offers up tips on how to react if a gunman opens fire in a public place. the prince george's county police department is urging everyone to watch. >> there are three things you could do that make a difference. run, hide, fight.

first and foremost, if you can get out, do. >> homeland security officials in houston produced this run, hide, fight video with a grant from the department of homeland security. coming up a schoolyard incident sent several toddlers to the emergency room. >> and the maryland man once linked to the death of a woman in aruba now facing a lawsuit, details of his latest legal troubles up next. president clinton: this election to m me is about which...

10:31 pm
pennsylvania, goes to the pentagon and ends at new york's ground zero. >> it's a heart thing you do. you can't pay me to do it. >> reporter: he's not paid and neither is anyone else on the board. all the work that goes into it is voluntary and over the years the leesburg virginia charity raised $2.2 million. its mission, to provide scholarship to the children of first responders and to help cash strapped fire departments and police around the country, but putting on the ride is costly. >> some look at it is where does your fund goes? our major thing for funding is hotel rooms. >> reporter: in 10 years only $168,000 has gone to scholarships after paying for hotels, food, tolls, compensation to close roads and other expenses, another 540,000 went to buy motorcycles and help first responders. charity navigator which evaluates more than 6,000 charities says donors should be concerned. >> we think it's terrible. we think it's a real waste of
10:32 pm
money when these kind of expensive events seem to cost so much money. >> reporter: while the event's website features a pie chart counting nearly 90% of its money goes to programs and services, its 2011 tax file shows differently with 44% of revenues spent on fundraising with far less return. >> they claim that scholarships are a central part of what they do, but out of $400,000 raised approximately 350 to $400,000 raised about 30,000 goes to scholarships. >> reporter: following the terrorist attack the irs fast tracked more than 300 9/11- related charities. as of 2006 charity navigator found 1/3 couldn't be found. 38 were out of business. >> after a few years the amount of giving declined significantly. >> i had this lofty expectation of maybe getting half a million or 700,000. >> reporter: tom heiden berger
